Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels may be available for people who:

Your doctor or health professional can refer you for Meals on Wheels or you can refer yourself. Meals on Wheels are subsidised by the Canterbury District Health Board and cost $6.20 a meal (as at August 2017).

To find out more, see Meals on Wheels or phone (03) 335‑4443.

If you are not eligible or prefer not to use Meals on Wheels, alternative home-delivered meal services (this link downloads a list) are available but the costs are not subsidised.
